[image]Summit Crater of Mauna Loa - Astronaut photograph was provided by the Earth Sciences and Image Analysis Laboratory at Johnson Space Center. Additional images taken by astronauts and cosmonauts can be viewed at the NASA-JSC
high resolution, 1000 pixel-wide imageAstronauts obtained this detailed image of the summit caldera of Mauna Loa volcano, called Mokuaweoweo Caldera. Mauna Loa is the largest volcano on our planet—the summit elevation is 4,170 m (over 13,600 ft), but the volcano’s summit rises 9 km above the sea floor. The sharp features of the summit caldera and lava flows that drain outward from the summit are tribute to the fact that Mauna Loa is one of the Earth’s most active volcanoes...

[image]Yucatan Impact Crater - Impact craters, SRTM detection of subtle but broad topographic features - NASA/JPL/NGA
The topography of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula reveals a subtle, but unmistakable, indication of the Chicxulub asteroid impact crater, believed by many scientists to be the cause of a mass extinction event 65 million years ago. In this computer-enhanced image, the crater's outer boundary is visible as the semi-circular, darker green line in the peninsula's upper left corner: a trough only 3 to 5 meters 10 to 15 feet deep and 5 kilometers 3 miles wide...

[image]Ash from Grimsvotn Volcano on Iceland's Vatnajokull - Image courtesy Jacques Descloitres, NASA-Goddard Space Flight Center
As fall marches toward winter in the Northern Hemisphere, Iceland’s rugged terrain casts long shadows back on itself, exaggerating the topography of the island's snow-covered mountains, particularly along the eastern coast. On the northeastern portion of the island’s largest ice cap—Vatnajokull—what appears to be another of the season’s long shadows is actually a layer of ash from the recent eruption of the sub-glacial volcano that lies beneath the thick ice.The Grimsvötn Volcano and ...

[image]Sediment History Preserved in Gale Crater Central Mound - NASA/JPL/MSSS
This image continues the theme of things eroded, things covered up, and then exposed again. The circular feature labeled, " Partly-Exhumed Crater,"is interpreted to be an ancient impact crater that formed on the same layered rock surface into which the channel in PIA02844 was cut. This crater, like the channel in PIA02844, indicates that the layered rock was exposed to the atmosphere for some period of time before the next layer of material--the bright, almost white ridged rock that covers most ...

After over a decade of silence, Mount St. Helens has started to rumble. Following a week of threatening earthquakes, the volcano belched forth a plume of ash and steam on October 1, 2004. Hot rock pushed to the surface, vaporizing the mountain glaciers into steam. The earthquakes continued over the course of the following three days accompanied by another small steam eruption. On October 4, a second cloud of steam billowed from the mountain for about 40 minutes starting at 9:43 a.m., local time...

(Released 17 June 2002) This image contains a portion of Aureum Chaos located just south of the Martian equator. This fractured landscape contains canyons and mesas with two large impact craters in the upper left. The largest crater is older than the one above it. This is readily evident because a landslide deposit created by the smaller crater's impact is seen on the larger crater's floor. The overall scene has a rather muted appearance due to mantling by dust...

On October 12, 2004, a plume of ash streamed to the southwest from the Sheveluch Volcano on Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula. The ash could be erupting from the volcano, or it could be old ash, resuspended on the wind, but without ground confirmation, it is impossible to tell. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite, which acquired this image, did not detect a thermal emission associated with an eruption, but that does not necessarily mean that the vol...

(Released 28 March 2002) This scene shows gullies superposed on the inner walls of four large craters. Most of these gullies appear to emanate from one or two specific layers along the inner crater's entire circumference. The presence of gullies on the equatorward facing slopes is unusual in that most gullied inner crater walls are poleward facing. It appears that there are several distinct layers from which the gullies issue forth as well as different expressions and possibly types and or ages ...

The image in this article has been cropped and enhanced to improve contrast. Lens artifacts have also been removed. The spaceflight.nasa.gov/home/index.html International Space Station Program supports the laboratory to help astronauts take pictures of Earth that will be of the greatest value to scientists and the public, and to make those images freely available on the Internet. Additional images taken by astronauts and cosmonauts can be viewed at the eol.jsc.nasa.gov/ NASA/JSC Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth.
One of the most consistently active volcanoes in the world, Sicily's Mount Etna has a historical record of eruptions dating back to 1500 BC. This astronaut photograph captures plumes of steam and possibly ash originating from summit craters on the mountain: the Northeast Crater and Central Crater, which includes two secondary craters (Voragine and Bocca Nuova).
